Randy played the Devil in NYC’s “Faust” concert on July 1, 2014

Randy Newman lead a one-night-only performance of his famed 1995 musical “Faust” in concert at New York City Center on July 1, 2014, as part of the Encores! Off-Center series. Here is a short highlight clip from that performance.

 

The musical is “like Goethe’s Faust Pt. 1, but more complex psychologically; more like Pt 2 but not the product of an ordered mind,” says Newman. “The Lord and the Devil are childhood friends who in adulthood have a falling out. The Devil is expelled from Heaven, somewhat arbitrarily some might say, and though he reigns in Hell, he longs to return to his childhood home. He goes up to visit Heaven for the first time in a long while. He finds the Lord and tells him Man is bad, and should never have been created. The Lord says that He doesn’t make mistakes. As they did in the 12th, 14th and 16th centuries, they bet on it, pick a young Notre Dame Freshman as a representative specimen and hilarity ensues.”

Faust opened in 1995 at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego and was revived at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago in 1996.

Randy honored by PEN New England on Monday, June 2, 2014

Randy, “whose 40-year career has included a few improbable hits (‘Short People’ and ‘I Love L.A.’), two Academy Awards (and 20 nominations), and a trove of smart, satirical songs that has won him the reverence of his peers, seemed to enjoy himself Monday. He told the crowd he’s ‘just enough of a snob’ to relish receiving an award from a literary group.”

Randy plays in the Library of Congress Gershwin Room

During a recent visit to The Library of Congress, Randy Newman was given the opportunity to play George Gershwin’s piano. “Outdoors but Not the Red River Valley” was written on commission from pianist Gloria Cheng and is one in a five-part homage to Newman’s uncles, film composers Alfred, Emil and Lionel Newman.

“My uncle Alfred wrote the music for a number of John Ford’s films. In every one of them, the great director wanted to use ‘Red River Valley.’ Al liked the tune, but not in every picture. I wrote this piece for my uncle, who was a really great composer. Listening to it, because of whose piano I was playing, apparently I was afraid to use the pedal.

“Thanks for visiting this site. I promise to do better by you in the future. (In B flat): Happy Thanksgiving to you and Happy Birthday to me!”

– Randy Newman
